Shorting Atlas Financial shares

There are currently 67,231 Atlas Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Atlas Financial's "short interest". This figure is 136.9% up from 28,380 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Atlas Financial shares can be evaluated.

Atlas Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Atlas Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atlas Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atlas Financial shares traded daily (recently around 747011.11111111). Atlas Financial's SIR currently stands at 0.09. In other words for every 100,000 Atlas Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 90 shares are currently held short.

However Atlas Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atlas Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Atlas Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atlas Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Atlas Financial shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0069% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Atlas Financial shares, roughly 7 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Atlas Financial.

Atlas Financial share dividends

We're not expecting Atlas Financial to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Atlas Financial's shares ever split?

Atlas Financial's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 31 January 2013. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Atlas Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Atlas Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Atlas Financial's share price.

Atlas Financial share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Atlas Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.1 up to $1.59. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AFH.US volatility(beta: 1.3)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Atlas Financial's is 1.3011. This would suggest that Atlas Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
